Are we having FUN yet?

Who says that Hardie Panels are boring?  The installation of the rear elevation at the Periscope House proves otherwise. Using ordinary materials in an extraordinary way is something we always try to do.  Charles and Ray Eames had that philosophy, so why not us?  Not one to be too demonstrative, it seemed like a good opportunity to put in something surprising into one of our projects.  Primary colors will make the rear of the property a festive place and very different from the more sophisticated material palette in the front of the house.

Concrete Floors can be beautiful too!  Vera Floor Systems just finished grinding, staining, and polishing the entire first floor of the house and it has a wonderful depth and shine.  Owner Tony Vera worked hard with us to get the color right and it has a nice warm grey tone to it and our buyers could be more pleased with the results.  I have searched for years to find the right concrete company that could achieve this result and Tony is the guy!
